A comparison of images taken in UV and IR. The UV image only shows very slight detail, although capturing UV features during the crescent phase is generally difficult.

Seeing conditions were very good which came as a surprise as the jetstream was overhead.

The planet is showing a 28.5% phase, 38.6" diameter and was at 25° altitude.
